Stem cells are the body's natural way of healing. When you are sick or injured, stem cells travel through the body to the site that needs repair.
But, the stem cells the body provides don't work fast enough to remedy a chronic progressive disease like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Stem cell therapy introduces additional stem cells to battle the disease by rebuilding healthy cells in the affected area.
New developments in stem cell therapy indicate that the lung cells may be rebuilt, treating the cause of the chronic progressive disease.
Dr. Jack Coleman joins Dr. Mike to discuss how stem cell therapy can help combat lung disease.
